Thanksgiving Enjoyed By Most

No more Taco Bell for you.Thursday, which was Thanksgiving Day in the United States, was enjoyed by most SpinDizzy residents. Even those from outside of the U. S. seemed to get into the spirit of the thing, and had a good time.

Although a big meal and gathering with friends and relatives and being thankful for the good things one has in life are part of the Thanksgiving Day holiday, it doesn't have to be any particular day to do these things, particularly the part about being thankful that, at least, that our lives aren't worse.

As the weekly survey shows, SpinDizzy residents have many different things they are thankful for. One thing I think we can all agree that we are thankful for, is that we can meet and have fun on SpinDizzy. We can thank Findra, Austin, B.J, Skyler, Ping, and Peppermint, and all the players who make SpinDizzy what it is.

Every once in a while, someone will have a bad day and need someplace to vent their frustration or anger or disappointment. Or someone may want to tell friends about a great idea, or a happy event or accomplishment. We can be thankful, that among other reasons we have to be grateful, we have SpinDizzy, where we can be ourselves, and not have to apologize for it.

As far as food, and relatives, most everyone had large amounts of one or the other or both. The day after Thanksgiving Day was slow and relaxed, as those who wore belts loosened them, and prepared for the rest of the Holiday Season!

Blueberry Cheesecake Recipie

Eye-poke prequal.Here's a very yummy treat I think everyone will enjoy. Even if you do not normally like cheesecake, you're sure to like this. I love it, and I hate cheesecake. :)

First we need to collect the following items:

1-1/2 packages of Graham Crackers
1 stick of butter - softened
8oz soft cream cheese
1 cup powdered sugar
1 large tub Cool Whip
Blueberry Pie Filling

Mash together graham crackers and butter in a small cake pan. I have best results if I first pulverize the graham crackers in a processor.

Next, we thoroughly mix together the cream cheese, powdered sugar and Cool Whip in a large bowl. You might want to smooth out the cream cheese in the processor also, to eliminate lumps.

Pour this mixture on top of the graham cracker base, spreading it out evenly.

Lastly, carefully spread the blueberry pie filling over the whole thing. Refrigerate about 1 hour.

For variation, you can substitute other kinds of toppings, such as strawberries, but I usually have best results if I stick with the pie filling varieties.

Gittin And Edukashun

Writing a letter.Dear Editor,

For my homework assignment, I need to write a letter to the editor on a thoughtful topic, but I am a very jaded and lazy sort of student. Could you write the letter for me?

Saludos Estudiante,

Tanto como nosotros en Noticias de @Action queremos ayudar educa a jóvenes, yo tengo miedo nosotros no podemos honorar este pedido particular.

Si debíamos escribir la carta para usted, entonces usted no estaría haciendo la tarea, y eso estaría estafando.

Y, si escribimos la carta, y lo publicó aquí en Noticias de @Action, su es copiarlo y girarlo en sería el plagio, y por supuesto, nosotros nunca alentaríamos eso.

De otro modo, mejor de suerte en el aquiring su ha GED. Entendemos la Preparatoria de Madison, cuando anunciado en la TV es una escuela fina. Muchos Rey de la Hamburguesa Directores Ayudantes han obtenido sus comienzos allí.

Guidelines and Procedures for Submitting Articles

Submitting a story or artwork for @Action News is easy! Just send it to newspaper@spindizzy.org or qmail or page Argon about it.
@Action News is published weekly on or after 12:01 AM Eastern Time on Sunday. Most any type of story or article will be accepted. Generally, we'd prefer things that aren't out and out lies or flames about other folks, and have a basis in the reality of SpinDizzy. Things that occur in public areas are fair game. The things reported don't have to have actually happened, (any more than anything that happens here does) but make sure you don't overstep the social boundaries and rules of interaction that we have. These are pretty broad guidelines, but we expect good sense to apply.

Thanks! Argon, Editor @Action News
